Feedback from a customer - "Hello. You recently sent us two truckles of Cheddar which we took with us on holiday to Scotland. I would like to have sent you pictures of the cheeses enjoying themselves on the beach, collecting shells and swimming in the surf, but we ate them instead and they were delicious, and MUCH MUCH better than the two we bought at vast expense from xxxxxxxxxx last year. Thank you, thank you - we'll be back soon! Best, Alice"
If you have never bought or received a whole truckle before, here are some tips for cutting and storing. You can either cut the truckle in half (should you want to keep half for another occasion) or you should cut a slice or cap, approximately 1cm, off the top. The best way to cut is by using a cheese wire (dental floss is an easily obtainable alternative) or a sharp knife; score around the cheese first. Then remove a little (or all) the cheese cloth and cut and serve down the truckle. Alternatively, cut rings of cheese. Store in a refrigerator and clingfilm any cut surfaces or apply the cap you removed earlier. If storing for any more than a couple of days, remove the cheese cloth entirely, as this can impart a musty taste to the cheese. Click here for more Cheddar Truckle product information
